The Rationale and Design of the Self-Schedule System.
Wang, Margaret C.
The Self-Schedule System is an instructional-learning management "tool" designed to implement the curriculum components of an individualized early learning program. The overall concern of the system is to provide ecological supports which enable the teacher to adapt instruction to individual students, and encourage students to assume increasing responsibilities for their own learning. The curriculum is described in terms of the teacher prescribed "perspective learning" component and the student-selected "exploratory learning" component. Curriculum objectives concerned with the development of general cognitive and socio-emotional skills are given. Teacher and student functions are described. Teacher functions focus on planning the general classroom learning environment and implementing and adapting the program to the individual student. Student functions are characterized under two broad categories: the passive and active learner roles. A behavior hierarchy of key competencies the students need to acquire to function effectively is also presented. (SDH)
